Expenses For July 2006

For the month of July, we did much better in keeping close to our budget compared to the month before. We missed our targeted amount by roughly $100, or 2.7%.

Not bad considering the fact that we this was our best month in monthly expenses. That’s the good new; now the bad news. In preparing for our upcoming move at the end of the month, we needed to begin purchasing flights home, flights for our family to help us, and the added cost of paying the security deposit for our new town house. All in all, this category, which was not budgeted for, cost us roughly $1,300.

As explained in our last post, we used money from our emergency fund to cover this expense. We are going to tentatively plan to use this budget for August, but it would not surprise us if some categories are just blown out of the water due to the expense of those both here at our old apartment and our new one, plus the added expenses of the move!
